It is with much disappointment and great reluctance that Homeshare International and THE HomeShare announce the cancellation of the Dublin World Homeshare Congress which was to have been held in May 2023.
This difficult decision is due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, current inflation and the high costs of accommodation for visitors and delegates in Dublin.
Events like conferences have been impossible to run or even plan with any confidence for the last 3 years.
We felt optimistic back in early 2021 that we could think ahead and start planning for a super congress in gorgeous Dublin – in Dublin Castle no less!
But the global financial uncertainty that we see unfolding before us now – less than 12 months out from our advertised conference dates – confronts us with such uncertainty and financial risk that we simply have no choice but to make this hard decision.
So it was back to the drawing board to plan for something achievable ON-LINE in 2023. Instead of the Congress, we are offering a series of sessions throughout the year starting September 2022. See HI in Conversation for details.
Homeshare International would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank local Homeshare programme, THE HomeShare, for all their hard work over the last 12 months.
We also thank the Irish Government, in particular the Department of Health, for their support of the Congress as well as Failte Ireland and Dublin City Council.
